A converted chapel in Harrogate will go to auction next week.

The Chapel, on Grove Road, was built in 1896 and is a Grade-II listed building.

Mark Hinchcliffe, from Harrogate, bought the property in 2013. He originally lived in it before spending four years converting it into an eclectic bed and breakfast, which featured on Channel 4’s The Restoration Man.

However, Mr Hinchcliffe put The Chapel on the market for £1.5 million in 2020, but subsequently lowered the price to £1 million in April this year.

The empty building remains unsold and is now listed with Allsop — with a guide price of £850,000 plus.

The Chapel offers six bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, two separate bathrooms, two reception rooms, a vaulted drawing room, a dining room, an orangery and a library.

It also boasts a large entrance hall and a 50ft atrium, as well as a utility room and plant room.

The Chapel’s floor plan.

The listing states:

“The property may afford possible potential for change of use and/or redevelopment, subject to obtaining all necessary consents.”

The auction will be live-streamed on Tuesday, November 7 and Wednesday, November 8.
